There are many complexities inherent in obtaining non-profit and tax-exempt status for our spaces. The School Factory, a 501c3 organization, is currently providing tax exempt status to a number of spaces through fiscal sponsorship, a legal means of providing this status to projects and programs. We are also working on group exemption, which is a more elaborate and complex alternative to fiscal sponsorship but which offers spaces greater freedom and control over their tax exemption and donations.
This blog post serves as the Space Federation's primary place of discussion and talk regarding tax exemption, non-profit status, and group exemption.
